Do they sell kinako mochi at Nakamise Dori? If so, can you give me the approximate location of the stall?

at Nakamise-dori in Asakusa there's this shop
http://www.kikuya-nakamise.com/english/menu.html Though the only item with kinako appears to be the yomogi dango. If you click on the access link there's a map.

Although I can't remember where you can eat Kinako-mochi in Asakusa, it is often called "Abekawa-mochi" in the sweets-restaurants that are called "Kanmi-dokoro" in Japanese.
(I know you can eat it at Kinozen in Kagurazaka without fail.)

And if you want to eat something with kinako, Kuzu-mochi is common sweets on the menu.

Kuzu-mochi at Funabashi-ya in Kameido is very famous (and I love it).

Akane in Asakusa is a good Japanese sweets-cafe and Kuzu-mochi is on their menu.

Umezono in Asakusa is a famous sweets-restaurant and Kuzu-mochi is on their menu.
I often visit there but maybe there is crowded and not so comfortable...

And Umezono is in Tokyo SkyTree also.
